Aurora

  Justin Mclean (jmclean):

    Project is off to a good start with lots of activity on the mailing list
    and in JIRA. Mentors are not very active but there are no issues that
    need attention.

--------------------
BatchEE

  John Ament (johndament):

    BatchEE is a new podling, with a small team working on it currently.
    It's a fork of the RI for Java Batch from Java EE 7.  I think short term
    they should focus on getting a release out there to draw in community
    interest; which should help build the podling more and drive feature
    interest.

  Dave Fisher (wave):

    This podling is growing. They plan a release soon and let's see how that
    goes. When it comes time for graduation I have some concerns that this
    podling's community may be too small.

  Christian Grobmeier (grobmeier):

    the podling is just getting started

MetaModel

  Roman Shaposhnik (rvs):

    In general project seem to be on the right track with a healthy amount
    of community interaction happening over the mailing list and a strong
    desire to do a release. Two issues have caught my attention though:

    1. I am not quite sure what motivated a strong drive towards having
       by-laws this early in the game. In my experience the focus on by-laws
       can, at times, put a damping factor on community growth. IOW, what
       I've seen in the past is that communities try to come up with by-laws
       when the usual process of consensus building starts to fail. Nothing
       actionable here for the project -- just keep this in mind.
    2. The JIRA feels a bit empty for the project that has been developing
       for more than 6 month (grand total of 33 issues). At the same time
       the number of commits in the Git repo is on par with the development
       pace. What it tells me is that there's no strong correlation between
       JIRAs and commits. This raises a red flag of whether all of the
       changes that are committed get a proper community vetting before they
       go in.  I couldn't find any traces of the review requests either:
         https://reviews.apache.org/groups/metamodel/
       This in my opinion is a pretty big concern for the project.

--------------------
ODF Toolkit

  John Ament (johndament):

    ODF Toolkit has been incubating for a long time.  Activity on their list
    is in frequent, but active enough that it still is running.  Considering
    what the project is, I think the best resolution for this podling is to
    graduate as a sub project under something like OpenOffice or POI.

Spark

  Alan Cabrera (acabrera):

    Seems like a nice active project.  IMO, there's no need to wait import
    to JIRA to graduate. Seems like they can graduate now.

--------------------
Stratos

  Raphael Bircher (rbircher):

    The project looks realy active.  Continue like this guys!

VXQuery

  Raphael Bircher (rbircher):

    The mailing list traffic is not very high. However, the basic
    discussions are on the lists.
